Wanted to take the time to say thank you to all who served their country and especially to those who made the ultimate sacrifice–and also as well as the family members who lost loved ones. This year is especially hard as our elderly face a new enemy- the Covid virus. At a time when we may most want to be with them, we cannot for fear of exposing them to deadly risks. While a poor substitute, I encourage each of you to call, write,email or text a veteran (or a family member who lost someone who served) and let them know that they are not forgotten. It was their sacrifices that allow us to have the freedom to be ourselves. And for our WW2 vets especially- whose numbers are decreasing all too rapidly as they succumb to old age- thank you for giving up years of your young adulthood tat we might enjoy decades of peace!
I wrote this last year for Memorial Day and I hope it gives us all pause or thought this weekend.
